California Safe Soil, LLC | Sacramento, CA, USA
Waste - Food Recycling | www.calsafesoil.com
We are a fresh food recycler. A typical supermarket throws away about 600 pounds of food a day. Most of it ends up in landfills. We have a unique system to capture that food before it rots, convert it into a homogeneous liquid fertilizer full of "building block" nutrients, and pasteurize it, for food safety. We are the "fork to farm" side of the "farm to fork" movement. See our video, http://youtu.be/WMpnPTfYPbY.
GeoVisual Technologies | Boulder, CO, USA
Drone - (UAVs) | www.geovisual-analytics.com
We combine images & ground truth from multiple sources & scales for the best available monitoring. Drones will be grounded for a while & high res satellite imagery is costly. We start with free, global Landsat. We know how to derive intel from raw images & how to fuse diverse data (images, weather, soil) to create the most accurate, up-to-date maps. As cheaper higher res imagery arrives (e.g. Google SkyBox; drones), our solution gets even better.
